Description: Technological inventions and developments have created new possibilities and breakthroughs in medical diagnostics. The classic example is the discovery of X-rays by W.C. Roentgen, one hundred years ago. The application and commercial success of new diagnostic methods depend mainly on three primary factors: sensitivity, specificity and cost effectiveness. The first two determine the added clinical value, in comparison with existing methods. Nowadays, much greater importance is attached to cost effectiveness than in the past. This also holds true for diagnostic equipment where, for example, one of the consequences is that price erosion will occur where the functionality of an instrument is not open to further development.
